The Fumble . . .

“And the Lord said to Moses, ‘Cut two tablets of stone  like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.'”  Exodus 34:1

I had totally forgot this . . .Moses dropped the original ten commandments.  Not just dropped, but threw them down in anger when he saw the people worshiping the golden calf.  Like a priceless heirloom, I’d think they couldn’t be replaced.  But  God in His unlimited graciousness says, “Come . . .I’ll write again.”

Lord, forgive me for when I drop what You have told me and given me.  Thank You for writing it again and again on my heart. Here’s a simple poem . . .

His Living Heirloom

I’ve been given something so important
of unimaginable worth
more priceless than all the heirlooms
that can be found upon this earth

and if I do drop it
and forget to pick it up
it lays unbroken, calling
“come drink again this cup.”


  1. “come drink again this cup.”

    Again a thought from Hudson Taylor when he commented on John 7:37 which says, “If any man is thirsty, let him come to me and drink”. Taylor’s point is that we are to come often. It is our strength.

  2. Deb, I love this poem! We do have something of imaginable worth – the truth of the Gospel – so much more priceless than the law that Moses broke. Thank you for reminding me that I need to keep hold of it always. Peace, Linda

  3. I love that, Mike! Thank you so much for your comments that take us deeper and closer. 🙂

  4. God has been talking to me about grace a lot lately, and that is what stood out to me! His grace, even when we drop ours. Thank you for all you do to encourage us!

  5. Debbie,
    If God were not continually merciful and gracious, there would be no point to us submitting to His ways because we would lose face in no time. Praise God that He is the epitome of love and has forgiven us eternally by the blood of His son shed for us. His mercies are new every morning and by His grace, we forge ahead! Thank you for the sweetest poem that reflects God’s merciful and bountiful love for us!
    In Christ,

  6. Your so right Vineet! We would be lost without His mercy and grace, that catches us and whispers to us to come again. 🙂 God bless you! So glad to have you here!

  7. Thats nice Debbie.
    Good words.

    I like how Aaron says -hey I just threw this gold in and a calf came out. Oh ,that just kills me but I know I do the same thing(make excuses),maybe that is why it is so funny to me.

    I am glad the cup is always there 🙂

  8. I love that you brought up Aaron making that calf! ha! Maybe we had to be there, huh?
    Hope you are feeling better! You need a cup of chicken soup! 🙂

  9. i fumble
    i stumble
    i drop it
    but He won’t drop me

  10. yay! I’m so glad He catches us! 🙂

  11. I have had enough chicken soup to float a battleship around and I am feeling better.
